    I found this website that has tack boxes that you can make yourself. I plan on building two lockers to house my two horses equipment. This will keep them from molding and also keep the rodents out of them. It will keep my tack room more organized. They seem to be pretty inexpensive to build but are somewhat time consuming to make.

    Tack lockers will not stop your tack from molding, it might actually increase it.
    Tack "molds" from...

    Molds and mildews are fungus.
    All mildews are mold, but not all molds are mildews

    Either way - molds and mildews are common in dark, damp, humid, poorly ventilated areas.

    That is what you will create by building and putting your tack in a tack locker with minimal ventilation...
    Better to secure your tack in a way that it is able to breathe, be in a ventilated and light area not locked away in the dark and dank of a box.

    Maybe construct something with strong wire mesh if you need to secure your equipment and store things away than solid wood sided it with wood frame and heavy metal wire instead...

    I would store nothing "edible" in plastic as mice gnaw through plastic with no problem... they get into feed, storage containers...pretty much anything not metal if they choose is only a matter of time and their nose to smell out the desired gnaw toy to them.
    You can try mothballs and or cedar pieces that repel moths. They may also help repel those pesky mice from looking for a easy meal or soft bed at your expense.

    Mine isn't anything fancy, but it works! I keep my tack in my locker, feed in plastic bins to keep mice out. I like the Rubbermaid drawers for medical supplies.
